Volunteering for Red Shield Appeal

Teresa Morris is volunteering for the Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal this year because she knows what it feels like to be in need.

Ms Morris said when she lived in Sydney she had to use the homelessness service until she was able to get back on her feet and now she wanted to give back so other people could also use the same service.

This will be the first doorknock appeal Ms Morris has been involved in however she said she would hopefully continue to volunteer for the appeal in subsequent years.

“I’ve got a target that I’d like to get while I’m doing it, if I could raise about $200 I’d be really happy with that,” she said.

Ms Morris said she was hoping to do the appeal in her own area or through the Westland Shopping Centre.

She said she was most looking forward to the generosity of other people during the appeal when they donated money.

“The money is going towards useful things such as housing and food and it’s a really good cause so I’m happy to be helping out and doing what I can for it,” Ms Morris said.

Ms Morris said she would encourage prospective volunteers to sign up for the appeal because it was a great opportunity and it was helping someone in need.

The Salvation Army holds a street outreach program every fortnight for anyone to come along to.

It is held at the foreshore on Fridays at 5pm.

The army hopes to mobilise 100,000 volunteers across the country for the Red Shield Appeal.

The Red Shield Appeal helps the Salvation Army provide more than 100,000 meals and 5000 food vouchers to hungry people and 2000 beds for homeless people every week.

To find out more information about the Red Shield Appeal or to sign up as a volunteer phone the Salvation Army on 8645 7150.
